What To Ask Your Roofer Before You Commit
Your roofer should be comfortable with being asked certain questions before going onto a job. You don’t want to be stuck with a sub-par roofer, who will likely do a shady job on your roof. Researching into each potential roofer can save you a significant amount of money in repairs in the future, as well as headaches and water leaks.
The most important questions to be asked are as follows:
-Are you licensed? This is an important question to ask, while unlicensed roofers may work for less money, in the event of something going wrong though, having worked with a licensed roofer gives you some recourse
-Do you supply workers comp for your roofers? This may seem like a strange question to ask, but since insurance can be costly, some companies may skip out on it. If this is the case, and a roofer is injured while working on your roof, there is a possibility you could be stuck with the medical bills.
-When replacing my roof, will you remove the old one? Some roofers may claim that you’ll save money with them because they can complete a job faster than competitors. This is normally because they don’t remove your old roof. If your roof isn’t removed, you could have rotten wood or soft spots.
There are many other questions to ask, these are just one of many. Make sure you are confident and comfortable with your roofer choice before you dive head first into a roofing project. There is much more than just price to consider when choosing a roofer.
